When Weaver couldnt sneak a fastball past Seattles Justin Smoak with two outs in the sixth, he instantly knew that the Angels were in trouble with how well Hernandez was pitching. "I couldnt keep us in it and Felix was dominant tonight," Weaver said. Hernandez threw eight shutout innings and Smoak drove in four runs off Weaver, including a three-run homer, in the Mariners 6-0 win over the Angels on Saturday night. Seattles ace allowed just two baserunners to reach third, the first coming on Mike Trouts triple in the third and not again until the eighth. Hernandez didnt rely on the strikeout and instead let the Angels put the ball in play. Hernandez struck out Albert Pujols twice and got Josh Hamilton and Erick Aybar swinging, but mostly relied on his defence. Hernandez allowed seven hits and didnt walk a batter. "You try to battle, try not to make a mistake, try to keep your team in the game," Weaver said. Hernandezs worst start of the season came less than a month ago against the Angels. Hernandez was knocked around for 12 hits and six earned runs in five innings, one of just two starts this season in which hes failed to pitch at least six complete innings. He allowed two home runs as well and got a no decision. That start was constantly in the back of Hernandezs mind and he vowed not to fall behind in counts against the Angels this time. The Angels noticed Hernandez taking a different approach, but were unable to make the adjustments. "Most guys probably dont have that many pitches in their repertoire to do that," Angels first baseman Mark Trumbo said. "He worked inside a lot more than he has before. I didnt see too many curveballs. ... He threw a slider and mixed in a changeup, but I found him throwing a lot more pitches inside tonight." Yoervis Medina pitched the ninth to finish off the shutout for Seattle. Smoak was at the centre of Weavers rough night. Smoak had an RBI single in the fourth inning that gave Seattle the lead, then provided the big blow in the sixth to cap a two-out rally. Kendrys Morales and Kyle Seager both singled and after Weaver received a visit from pitching coach Mike Butcher, Smoak hit the first pitch ouut to centre field for his eighth homer of the season. New Balance Baratas. The four RBIs were the most for Smoak since he drove in a career-high six runs on May 30, 2012 against Texas. Smoaks long ball was the 21st straight game with at least one homer for the Mariners, the longest streak for an American League team since the Rangers set the major league record with 27 straight in 2002. "It looked like he was sitting on something away," Weaver said. "It wasnt a bad pitch, but he put a good swing on it." Seattle first got to Weaver (3-5) in the fourth when Morales and Seager had consecutive singles. Seagers hit extended his hitting streak to 13 games. Smoak then capped a 10-pitch at-bat by lining a change-up from Weaver into right field. Third-base coach Daren Brown made the wrong call in sending Morales from second and Hamiltons throw easily beat the runner. But catcher Hank Conger failed to catch the ball cleanly and Morales scored. Conger was originally given an error, but the scoring decision was changed and Smoak was credited with an RBI. Morales and Seager started Seattles rally in the sixth with two-out hits that set the stage for Smoaks 411-foot shot to centre field. "I was thinking he was going to try and sneak a fastball in there first pitch and I was able to put a good swing on it," Smoak said. Weaver had allowed just two earned runs combined in his previous three starts, but Seattle raised his pitch count early. Weaver had thrown 107 pitches when he left after 5 2-3 innings, his shortest start since June 10 against Baltimore. "It goes both ways. I think if we had gotten on the board it might have let (Weaver) do a couple of things," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "He was pitching with his back against the wall." NOTES: Smoak now has five career games with four or more RBIs. ... Seattle RHP Stephen Pryor threw a second simulated game on Saturday and could be headed for a rehab assignment with Single-A Everett next week.
